Lonestar West Announces Q1 2017 Financial Results

SYLVAN LAKE, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – May 29, 2017) – Lonestar West Inc. (TSX VENTURE:LSI) today announced the financial results for the three month period ended March 31, 2017.
The results for the quarter ended March 31, 2017 continue to reflect the impact of the significant pricing pressure from the heightened competition for non-energy related projects. There was an increase in the Canadian utilization which did not translate into an increase in revenue as a result of the low rates. The ongoing delay in contract negotiations with a major account in the Unites States also had a direct impact on the Company overall. The focus of the Company will be to continue to reduce operating costs and improve margins which have suffered as a result of the low rates and higher costs.
Key points for the three months ended March 31, 2017 include:
Revenues were $8,307,033 for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, compared to $11,919,783 for the prior year comparable quarter.
Gross margin1 was 7.9% compared to 19.3% for the prior year comparable quarter.
Normalized EBITDAC2 was $(296,736) compared to $891,813 for the prior year comparable quarter.
Normalized EBITDAC3 per basic share was $(0.01) from $0.03 for the prior year comparable quarter.
Loss before taxes was $2,123,873 as compared to a loss before taxes of $1,053,137 for the prior year comparable quarter.
Loss for the period was $2,124,472 as compared to a Loss of $2,271,552 for the prior year comparable quarter.
“The results for the first quarter of 2017 did not reflect the efforts we made to improve our profit margin. The cost cutting was completed by mid-March but did not have sufficient time to realize the benefits, and the continued decline of the revenues offset the impact of the cuts we have made. As a result we have taken additional steps to continue making cuts throughout the organization.” commented James Horvath, President and CEO of Lonestar. “We view the potential acquisition by Clean Harbors, Inc. in a positive light and believe it is the correct strategy for all stakeholders.”
The Company is continuing to intensify its focus on cost control while maintaining superior service to its customer base. In addition, the Company is continually assessing the location of its fleet and redeploys assets to areas less impacted by the energy markets.

Samsung SDI to Unveil New Residential ESS Products for Global Market

SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung SDI (KRX:006400) is unveiling new residential ESS (Energy Storage System) products that use differentiated design technology in a move to gain a competitive edge in the market.
Samsung SDI will display its full ESS lineup at Intersolar Europe 2017 to be held in Munich, Germany, for three days from May 31. The product line includes new residential ESS products that hold the world’s largest market share, the world’s largest utility-scale 240MWh ESS, whose project was awarded to Samsung SDI last year, and UPS (Uninterruptible Power System) products, whose market shows an explosive growth. Samsung SDI will also present its ESS business performances and vision for the future.
Intersolar is the world-leading exhibition for the ESS and solar industries. Samsung SDI has participated in the trade show since 2012. About 1,000 companies, including large firms in ESS and solar photovoltaic fields, attend the event.
At the exhibition, Samsung SDI will highlight its residential ESS module lineup of high-capacity ESS modules and high-voltage ESS modules. A residential ESS is a battery system installed at home. Its main purpose is to store electricity generated at solar panels in batteries in the system for later use. A modular business takes place as Samsung SDI connects high-power batteries into modules, then makers of finished ESS products add components to the modules, enclose and sell them to consumers.
Samsung SDI’s high-capacity ESS modules are scalable to 39 basic modules with the capacity of 4.8kWh. This means the storage capacity can increase up to 39 times or that a maximum of 188kWh can be stored. It is close to the amount of electricity consumed by 20 homes for a day, given that the daily average of electricity consumption at home in Europe is around 10kWh. Samsung SDI expects to secure European homes with varying electricity demands as its customers through its high-capacity ESS modules.
Samsung SDI is also debuting High-voltage ESS modules that can scale up to 600V from existing 50V (volt) voltage. High-voltage ESS modules generate high volt by connecting cylindrical batteries. High-voltage battery modules enable homes to generate 220V and save costs of parts needed for voltage transformation.
One of the advantages of Samsung SDI’s residential ESS modules is high scalability. Samsung SDI plans to provide ESS modules fitting the various needs of ESS makers on time by applying differentiated scalability. If modules are highly scalable, only minor design changes are needed to meet customer demands, so design cost and time can be saved.
Samsung SDI plans to start mass producing residential ESS modules in the second half of this year. It has conducted tests in cooperation with customer companies from 2016 and expects to achieve their results in 2018.
Samsung SDI is recognized as a competitive company in the field of residential ESS by holding the largest share in Japan for four years from 2013. The Japanese residential ESS market has grown rapidly due to concern about electric grid insecurity since the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in 2011.
“Customers show much interest in the differentiated scalability of Samsung SDI’s residential ESS modules,” Sewoong Park, vice president for ESS team, Samsung SDI, said. “We will keep launching ESS products with market-leading technology.”
B3, a market research institution, projects the global residential ESS sales to reach 83,000 units this year and increase by some 16 percent on average annually to about 146,000 units by 2020. B3 also said Samsung SDI had the largest share of the global residential ESS market last year with 30 percent.

Vesper’s MEMS Microphone Saves >10x More Battery for Voice-activated Systems

BOSTON, MA–(Marketwired – May 24, 2017) – Vesper, developer of the world’s most advanced and reliable acoustic sensors, today launched VM1010, the first MEMS microphone to bring voice activation to battery-powered consumer devices — while drawing nearly zero power.
The inaugural member of Vesper’s ZeroPower Listening™ MEMS microphone product line, VM1010 is a tiny, ultra-rugged piezoelectric MEMS microphone that allows product designers to offer touchless user interfaces to consumers, without any power-consumption penalty. Consuming a mere 6 µA while in listening mode, VM1010 extends battery life to months or years by enabling the rest of the system to completely power down while waiting for a keyword. That is a major advantage to designers who can create an entirely new class of rugged, battery-operated, voice-interface devices that work anywhere. 
“Consumers want to interact with their electronic devices using just their voice. We are seeing a Cambrian Explosion of voice-enabled consumer electronics, including smart speakers, smart earbuds, and diverse IoT products,” said Matt Crowley, CEO, Vesper. “The problem is that speech recognition consumes a lot of power, 1000 µW or more, and that is why most voice-activated devices must be plugged in. By using unique materials that directly convert sound energy into electrical energy, VM1010 is the only MEMS microphone that uses sound energy itself to wake devices from sleep, while consuming negligible power. That’s a huge advantage to consumers who will be able to use their hearables, wearables, smart speakers, and event-detection systems for months or even years at a time, without recharging or replacing batteries.”

Amazon’s Alexa Fund has recently supported both Vesper and Invoxia, as two startups that are advancing voice user interface through their respective technologies. Invoxia is also preparing to launch its soon-to-be-released VM1010-based smart home hub. (See: Vesper Raises $15M Series A to Drive Pervasive Voice Interfaces and Amazon Announces the Next Alexa Fund Recipient: Invoxia.)
“When we first tested VM1010, we could hardly believe how much it extended battery life. We are excited to work with Vesper as we prepare to launch the world’s first ZeroPower Listening smart home hub in the coming months,” said Serge Renouard, CEO, Invoxia. “We expect consumers to delight in their ability to use Amazon Alexa as they wake our new smart speaker from sleep, without having to push a button to activate a product that they can use anywhere.”
About VM1010
VM1010 is a low-noise, high dynamic range, single-ended analog output piezoelectric MEMS microphone. It features a configurable voice zone, allowing voice in a 5-foot radius to 20-foot radius-zone to trigger the system and increase to a normal operation mode. When the environment is quiet, the system can enter ZeroPower Listening mode and the entire system can power down.
Like other Vesper piezoelectric MEMS microphones, VM1010 sets the standard for reliability and stability, even in harsh environments. It is dustproof to IP5X and waterproof to IPX7. Because it is stable in all environments, VM1010 microphones are also ideally suited to microphone arrays, which are critical to far-field audio applications.
Drawing a mere 6 µA of power in always-listening mode, VM1010 extends battery life by >10x.
VM1010 is a single-ended analog piezoelectric MEMS microphone. VM1010 is currently sampling and is available online through Digi-Key. Test boards and reference design boards using VM1010, DSP Group’s DSPG DBMD6 and Sensory’s Truly Handsfree™ wake word algorithms are available from Vesper via an exclusive invitation-only program.

2017 Justice for Injured Workers Bike Ride

TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwired – May 23, 2017) – Once again, in May 2017 injured workers will be riding to focus attention on the plight of injured workers and their right to compensation for work-related injuries and illnesses, and to defend a system that reflects “Full Compensation/No Half Measures”.
The message the cyclists intend to deliver is in response to growing number of injured workers whose benefits are slashed and are being downloaded onto welfare systems. Many injured workers, when denied fair compensation, are downloaded onto welfare systems where they struggle to gain access to shelter, a liveable income, accessible and caring workplaces and respect. The denying of compensation benefits to workers injured on the job results in many injured workers relying on short term disability, Canada Pension, Ontario Disability Service Programs (ODSP) and also results in poverty for these workers.
We know that we are entitled to a compensation system that works in the best interests of injured workers; a system that guarantees a life of dignity for injured workers and prevents us from falling into poverty, despair and exclusion. The cyclists ride for fair compensation; ‘rights for all’, as women workers, immigrant workers, and union and non-union workers.
Support this bike ride by joining the cyclists as they pass through your community.
